Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Sound pressure level measurements were made at Penn State (PSU) football games at Beaver Stadium, on the PSU campus, in Fall 2009. Twelve sound level meters were positioned around the field, on the press box, on the luxury suites, and outside the stadium to capture the characteristics of the crowd noise. The loudest portion of the sideline area was determined along with the maximum equivalent A-weighted sound pressure level. Additionally a HEAD VISOR acoustic array was utilized in conjunction with a portable white noise generator in order to determine which portions of the student section were generating the majority of the sound pressure on the field level. The results indicate which sections of students are able to most effectively project their voices onto the field.
